About the course
This new MA in Irish Studies (Literature and Music) offers an intensive academic curriculum in Irish Literature Studies and Irish Music Studies, focusing in particular on the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Using a dynamic interdisciplinary approach, aspects of Irish historical experience and Irish identities are examined through the prism of music, from traditional to popular, and through critical reading of literature in Irish (studied in translation) and in English. MA Irish Studies (Literature and Music) offers two alternative, academic pathways. All students share modules in both Literature and Music, and select additional modules in their specific area of interest, weighting their studies towards Literature or Music. Irish language literature will be studied in English translation.
